I am curious as to what the first 2 on the 2nd from bottom row are, the first

Al-Yaman, Ahghanistan, Zanhibar.
However, I missed the upper two which are Misr and Saudia.
The title is "Flags of *Islamic* nations" and not arab....

Some minor corrections probably just typo errors. Zanhibar should be Zanjibar
and the text accompanying first flag is Al-Hijaz.
